Jane Williams, Chair of the ABRS+, appeared this morning on BBC World and BBC One to argue for targeted Government support for riding schools, trekking and livery businesses. Jane described the challenges facing schools and the closure of riding businesses this year. This received great praise from our members that we were prioritising supporting them financially at this time.

The ABRS+ have been campaigning hard on behalf of members during recent lockdown restrictions to highlight the difficulties faces by equestrian establishments; Since the start of 2021, The ABRS+ have featured on BBC Television and Radio and in print in Your Horse, Horse & Rider and Hound and Your Horse. We are working to raise awareness of the financial difficulties Riding Schools in particular face and campaigning for increased support from the Government.The Horse and Hound features news of a Supreme Court Ruling on Business Interruption Insurance for small businesses which could be good news for riding schools.
